Spring into Spring – Wear Yellow and walk or wheel to school April 17
Calling all students, parents, and staff! Wear yellow and walk or wheel to and from school on April 17, as part of Spring into Spring. Let’s show the world that Hamilton cares about the environment and our health!
All year, HWDSB promotes and encourages its communities to utilize active and sustainable transportation. HWDSB is challenging its communities to step up to the plate by wearing yellow and using active transportation on their trip to school. The awareness day works in support of Active and Sustainable School Transportation (ASST).
HWDSB prioritizes ASST because it increases physical activity, reduces traffic congestion, improves air quality, enhances neighbourhood safety and instills a greater sense of community. The School Travel Planning (STP) model was created in conjunction with ASST by addressing systematic barriers regarding walking to school, and working to motivate communities to work together to assure students arrive safely.
